So my first advice would be "don't give up", many of us have been flying for years and yet we're all still learning. IMO fighting in WWII planes is one of the most challenging things you can do, and...

For me personally there's no doubt that the DCS flight models are the best. They should be with the amount of time and effort that goes into them. That's not to say all the other WWII sims have bad...

Lol, you misunderstand the source of my criticism. I mostly fly the P-51 and Dora, and my criticism comes from watching Spitfires constantly die to wing breakages. Especially as a Dora pilot where a...

No simulation can ever be perfect, computers are not real planes. So ultimately this all comes down to how you want your simulation to be flawed ... because it's flawed whatever you do. Some people...

Are there plans to add control stiffness modelling to the other WWII warbirds?



Are there plans to add some g-load cues, such as audio feedback, that the structural limits of the plane are...

Personally I agree that the impostors were not well implemented. However, I am a fan of "spotting aids" such as the smart scaling in Falcon 4 (which is model enlargement at longer ranges), because...

Except of course that the strength of the pilot is (partially) modelled in terms of control stiffening. This is what virtually every WWII combat flight sim does, as a combat flight sim without...

Well logically it'd be 12%, since that's 20% of 60%. As far as I can determine the controls window only shows the position of the controls, and how the curves affect it, not the effect on the...

To me this discussion is all kind of silly. You do not read accounts of Spitfire pilots constantly having to baby the plane to avoid breaking the wings. In contrast in DCS it is trivially easy to...

Top speed is mostly based on the balance between engine power versus drag. The P-51 does have a very aerodynamically efficient design which helped to make it fast (and fuel efficient). However, there...

The Dora is the fastest plane on the deck at WEP. It's slower than the P-51 up high, but down on the ground it's even faster than the 109. It also helps that because of the MW50 the Dora can keep...

Guns jamming

Hello,

I've noticed that it's very easy to jam the guns of the Dora under G. This may be realistic ... or it may not (personally I suspect it's over-modelled .. the 190 was well known for its...

Personally I like the FW-190 weapons a bit better than the Bf109 ones for anti-fighter work. Yes the 30mm hits real hard .. but the rate of fire isn't great and the muzzle velocity is kinda low, so...

Agree completely, more than anything else the damage model is what currently makes the P-51 so uncompetitive.

In my opinion this is much too simplistic. I like to compare fighters based on a number of criteria, firstly the ones I think are most important:

Well at the moment Air Quake is all we got, it'd sure be nice to have other experiences :-)



Not at all, easiest way to do that is to always fly German :-) At the end of the day there's a lot I...

Maybe you'd like the 190. I'm also a big fan of the P-51 and the P-47, and the 190 is similar in quite a lot of ways. As I say, they are all planes that love speed and dive and roll well. The...

I like fast planes that handle well at high-speed, with a good dive and a fast roll. That's not a Spitfire :-)

That said I do fly it sometimes, but it's not my favourite.
